Log A Load For Kids Volunteers Raise $2,285,032 in 2015 for 61 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
Grassroots Efforts Help Local Pediatric Patients Through
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
Log A Load For Kids, a group of individuals and businesses in the logging and forestry industry, raised $2,285,032 in 2015 for 61 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
What originally began as loggers and wood-suppliers donating the value of a load of logs to their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital has expanded into a variety of creative events. Generous volunteers organize various activities throughout the year including golf tournaments, carnivals, fishing events and skeet shoots to collect donations that benefit kids and families in the community.
“We’re so appreciative of the donations and the volunteer hours logged each year by the men and women involved with Log A Load For Kids,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Their efforts have resulted in countless miracles for the 62 kids who enter a CMN Hospital every minute.”
Log A Load for Kids has raised more than $46 million for sick and injured children since partnering with the charity in 1988. Log A Load funds impact 61 of the 170 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across North America. Hospitals utilize the funds based on what they need the most — typically for purchasing lifesaving equipment, supporting top therapy programs and providing charitable care.
“The opportunity to join Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in this effort to help deliver quality healthcare to children has become something very special for all of the state Log A Load For Kids® sponsors, vendors and all of our dedicated volunteers, said Sherri Hansen, Chair of Log A Load for Kids. We are thrilled with the donation total that was raised in 2015 and are looking forward to another great fundraising year in 2016.
